Dear All,

Having tried to do this with GETPIVOTDATA I now believe that that function only extracts totals and subtotals. I'm trying to extract the heirarchical data and I wonder if this is possible (I suppose I could go back to the original data, but I want to know if I can extract it from the pivot).

The source data is as follows:

companyunitnameworker
CompanyAAHarryBuggins
CompanyAAHarryArold
ShopNNJulieKen
ShopNNJulieLora
CompanyCCMartinNick
CompanyAAHarryCooper
CompanyAAHarryDenis
CompanyBBIanEric
CompanyAAHarryFrank
CompanyBBIanGertrude

<tbody>
</tbody>


The Pivot Table output looks like this:

companyunitnameworker
CompanyAAHarryArold
Buggins
Cooper
Denis
Frank
BBIanEric
Gertrude
CCMartinNick
ShopNNJulieKen
Lora

<tbody>
</tbody>


I would like to be able to refer to say 'Frank' and return that he works for the 'Company' company , in the 'AA' Unit, with a boss named 'Harry'. If I hover my mouse of the name Frank I get a popup that provides just that information, but I can't find a way of doing it either with code or a function; as noted above I cant make GETPIVOTDATA achieve this result.

Grateful for any advice.

Regards

When you repeat all itemlables you can use INDEX and MATCH to extract data from your Pivot Table.

Hi Mart,

How simple! I assumed I could do it, just didn't know how.

Many thanks, much appreciated.

Regards

Peter
